L’ami Du Peuple

Polyvinyl

Anyone vaguely familiar with MIKE KINSELLA’s musical lineage (CAP’N JAZZ, AMERICAN FOOTBALL, OWLS) knows he’s far from a one-note musician. And on new album, L’Ami du Peuple, he expands his repertoire as a solo songwriter to include a touch of female vocals, pounding drums, and even dueling electric guitar lines. The variety of sounds featured on L’Ami du Peuple can largely be attributed to a new approach Kinsella took to the writing and recording process. Rather than locking himself in a room with mostly finished song ideas for a couple of weeks before emerging with a finished album, this time Kinsella involved producer NEIL STRAUCH (Iron & Wine, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Andrew Bird) from the very beginning and spaced out recording over a few month period. This enabled him to naturally bring a different mood or vibe to the material he was working on every time he entered the studio—re-evaluating what had been recorded during the previous session and collaborating with Strauch on the direction new songs should take. As a result, L’Ami du Peuple sounds markedly different than any album Kinsella has released under the OWEN moniker.
